    They are just insanely beautiful, as soon as I am out of uni and start working a pair of G&G will be my first treat!

    Question for folks. On the Barneys website, it lists G&G sizes as, for example, UK 7.5/US 8.5. Obviously that's not the case since it's in my experience UK 7.5/US 8.0 in reality. Do you know which size holds when you're ordering on the site? I ordered a pair that said US 9.5 and I'm hoping that the are in fact UK 9.0/US 9.5, but I'm not sure.

    Finally, I have a pair of Savoys in Racing Green in UK 8.5/US 9.0. They don't quite fit me, if anyone is interested in them for $650 all in, let me know. They are BNIB with polishing cloth and shoe bags.

    Just one question, what's the best way to polish a shoe with such a beautiful antique finish? just natural wax? I assume any coloured products would ruin/cover that amazing finish!

    dont know if they changed it, there was a post about some kind of change, but my order, and a bunch of other, arrived half size smaller even though the website said full size. you should be fine.
